As Emerging Curator, Laura Reese will assist and be embedded alongside Momentum Tulsa guest curator Raechell Smith. Together they work with the Momentum Spotlight artists on their projects and will select work for the exhibition opening October 13, 2012. 

Reese is a BFA student at the University of Oklahoma with an emphasis on Printmaking. She expects to graduate in December this year.

To gain understanding of the arts community, Reese interned with the Femina Potens Art Gallery and FP Edge Artist Network in San Francisco, CA. She has interned locally with artist Marilyn Artus on the Girlie Show and Dr. Sketchy’s OKC as well as the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition. She serves as President of the OU Print Club.

Exploring national organizations, she participated in the Southern Graphics Council International conference in New Orleans and exchanged work with young artists all over the country last spring.  She has exhibited in the student art exhibition, at Dreamer Concepts, and several other juried venues in the state.  

With a keen interest in helping promising artists, she said, “If art truly does not stand still at Momentum, then the work chosen must be work that can hold power in the community while being evocative of the shifting tides within the art world.”

Artists may enter artwork into the Momentum Tulsa survey exhibition until September 5, 2012. Learn about the show and submit online: www.MomentumOklahoma.org. Also, the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition seeks an Emerging Curator for Momentum OKC 2013. Learn about the role and apply online
